Chiwetel Ejiofor Talks Joining DOCTOR STRANGE With Benedict Cumberbatch And Tilda Swinton

Now that he's finally able to acknowledge his villainous role as Baron Mordo, 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor has shared his excitement to be joining Marvel's Doctor Strange adaptation.



It was confirmed not too long ago during Disney's D23 Expo that Chiwetel Ejiofor will be portraying Baron Mordo in the much-anticipated Doctor Strange adaptation. So, when Entertainment Weekly spoke with the British actor for his role in the post-apocalyptic film Z for Zachariah, the magazine  certainly made an effort to ask about his debut in the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I am doing Doctor Strange, and I’m incredibly excited about it,” said Ejiofor, before he laughed and declared, “That’s all I say.” However, the Academy Award-nominated actor did discuss his excitement to be working on Doctor Strange with Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton, who will play Dr. Stephen Strange and the Ancient One, respectively. “He’s a good friend of mine,” Ejiofor said of his 12 Years A Slave and Strange co-star Cumberbatch. “So, it’s gonna be fun. And Tilda Swinton — I haven’t worked with her, but I’m excited to work with her. She’s brilliant.”

Sadly, Chiwetel Ejiofor could not elaborate on his Baron Mordo role, but Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson, and is scheduled to commence principal photography this November in the United Kingdom, and with a release date scheduled for November 4, 2016. What do you think?
